from Pastoral Review, 16 August 1916

The death occurred on 19th July of Mr. Hugh Mann Sutherland, at Elcho, Lara, Victoria. Born at Clashmore, in the highlands of Scotland in 1848, the late Mr. Sutherland was engaged by the late Mr. Thomas Chirnside to come to Victoria in 1872, under a three years' engagement. On arrival at Melbourne in August of that year, he went to the Werribee, and from there was sent to Carranballac Station. Eighteen months later he was appointed overseer at Mount William, and afterwards went to Mokanger Station. In 1878 Mr. Sutherland left the Chirnsides, and was engaged to manage Yabba Yabba and St. James Stations, in the north-eastern district of Victoria. In 1895 he leased the Elcho property at Lara, comprising 6300 acres, and eventually acquired it by purchase in 1903.

He leaves a wife, three daughters, and two sons. The younger, Douglas Sutherland, is at present on active service in the Artillery Brigade.
